Tecmo has dropped some new screens and video highlighting the new co-op feature in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
With Ryu Hayabusa's recent outings having been exclusively solo
affairs, the opportunity to play co-op is definitely a welcome one,
even if it is reserved only for special challenge stages. The two
videos show off both the online and offline co-op. Co-op offers some
neat new gameplay twists, like the ability to resurrect a dead partner
-- which we're guessing will happen a lot -- and co-op Ninpo magic maneuvers.
It certainly looks like a good deal of fun, though we can't help but notice that player two seems to spend an awful lot of time off screen during the offline co-op video (find it after the break). Looks like online is the best way to go.
